and Art Talks
Flores-Galbis believes that art should be accessible to everyone,
and enjoyable to all, not just the art-elite. He has gained an
extensive body of knowledge through a lifelong passion for the
subject. He has been looking, learning, reading and speaking about
and practicing art. As a gifted “art-explainer,” he
is able to pass on the understanding he has earned with clear and
generous explanations that will turn on the lightbulbs and get
anyone excited about art.
